Nineties Revival – Albums Of The Decade Part 1 & 2

Gateway 97.8Blogs, Nineties RevivalLeave a Comment

If you’ve ever been to a Pub quiz, the type of ‘music round’ questions which might pop up are ‘who spent the most weeks at number one’ or even ‘guess the year’. On the Nineties Revival over the last two weeks, the question we’ve asked is: Which albums by male/female artists and groups of the 90s spent the most weeks in the charts?

The results were two top twenty countdowns of some truly awesome music. If you missed either show, don’t worry, because we have compiled the playlists for you below. I should point out that these charts are by no means definitive, but have been researched as much as possible. Listed in order are artist, album title, year of release and weeks in chart.
